Holding Her Hand by Raymond A. Foss

Wanting so much to walk, for them,
so they would have something to eat,
some clean water to drink, that those in need
would have no want; that is why we walked
Holding her hand, at the back of the pack
the last walkers, struggling up the hill
We walked because of their poverty,
something she believed worth it.
Her faith carrying her on, each of them
walking, trudging, scuffing their feet
Holding their hands, each in turn,
encouraging them, and their cause
walking with them, because so many
have to walk, for food, for water
